  • NJ, where I grew up, is a place of contrasts. ANd in this instance, it is most worth seeking out the pleasant, rural and uncrowded contrast - escape the urban corridor and the mega-sprawl and take a d...  more »
  • We moved to Ringwood quite a while ago now, and never actually visited Ringwood State Park until very recently. Ironic, right?! Well, we finally decided to go check it out and are very glad we did. We...  more »
  • We love it here. From the formal gardens to the woodland paths there is so much beauty to explore. Be sure to visit in May when the lilac garden is in bloom. Hundreds of different plants and you can smell their fragrance from the park entrance. The perennial garden is my personal favorite. Bring a book and sit in the formal garden to sit and read for a spell. So many beautiful photo opportunities.
  • Botanical Gardens and Shepards lake. So beautiful. Incredible landscape. Just wish the building structures were better maintained. If you want to take pictures this is the place. Only a poet could do justice describing how beautiful it is. Postcard scenery. I go weekly to walk and unwind. Very family and friendly oriented. Come and take a walk and see God's great work. I love it.
  • The gardens here are my absolute favorite places, it's a wonderful place to think of read or do yoga. Great for photos, tons of volunteer opportunities!The ground are beautiful, the mansion is beautiful. I've been coming here multiple times a year since I was little and it's never lost its charm.
  • Went to Ringwood Manner State Park to view the Victorian Christmas display and decorations. The seven decorated rooms were decorated by local volunteers and were quite beautiful. Although very crowded I was able to take quite a few photos as I had planned. When done, I stopped at the carriage house to get some coffee and cake. I had to share a table with two women , a mother and daughter, and had a pleasant conversation.
  • Beautiful park! We had a lovely tour of the grounds which I would definitely suggest you take part in during your visit. Each season in the garden has a special highlight. Worth the trip.
